Welcome to the website of the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum Foundation, the alumni organization of Harvard University’s celebrated mixed choir. HRCMF is committed to supporting high-quality mixed choral music at Harvard. To that end, we provide financial and administrative support to HRCM and the other Holden choirs, the Harvard Glee Club and the Radcliffe Choral Society. We also serve as a resource and network for our alumni community around the world.

HRCMF is on Facebook! Connect with fellow Collegi-alumni by joining the HRCMF Facebook group.

The HRCM Foundation will be conducting its annual phonathon on Sunday, November 16, Monday, November 17, and Thursday, November 20. Current Collegiites will be reaching out to you to give you an update on Collegium projects and to encourage your financial support for the coming year. This year in particular, alumni gifts will be critical in funding the 2015 Tour to Brazil. Student contributions will cover about 40% of the tour budget, so the students are relying on alumni, friends, and other 3rd party grants to cover the rest!

We hope you enjoy catching up with current students and learning more about their terrific projects this year. Thank you in advance for your support!

If you’re ready to support the Collegium now, it’s easy! Just click on the “Donate to HRCMF” button in the top-left corner of the page or send a check made out to “HRCMF” to PO Box 381987, Cambridge, MA 02238.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Alumni Cocktail Party in Washington, DC: Collegium Visits the Capital!

The Collegium’s concert at this year’s ACDA Conference received rave reviews.  Congratulations to the choir and Andy Clark!  Following the performance, HRCMF and local DC alumni were thrilled to host a cocktail reception in downtown DC to celebrate the Collegium’s performance at ACDA on February 8th.  More than 80 singers, alumni, and other guests came together to catch up with old friends and meet new ones over hors d’oeuvres and wine. The evening was capped off with a heartwarming toast from Andy, and an impromptu and stirring performance by the Collegium of a few selections from their earlier performances (because two concerts in a day in not enough!).  Bravo to the choir, and thanks to our regional alumni who were in attendance!
